Outdoor School Shelter in Gwynedd
Posted on 13/03/2017
A&S Landscape was asked to install a generous outdoor shelter at Ysgol Gynradd Llanelltyd to make sure that students had access to the outside all year round.
Project – Motiva Linear provides outdoor shelter at Ysgol Gynradd Llaneltydd
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – Computer screens. Television screens. Mobile phone screens. The rise in our use of screen-based technologies has been impossible to keep up with and as our need for this kind of technology has grown, we’ve been left behind trying to figure out if it’s really such a good thing.
There’s no doubting the benefits of our increased connection to each other through the internet but it is now widely thought that the sheer amount of time our children spend on screens, as opposed to outside, connecting with nature, is damaging to their health and progress.
It is a shame because so much of the world outside is really very beautiful and if your view is of the rolling hills in Wales it would be a travesty to miss out.
But we don’t have to. By putting as much attention on access to the world outside as we do to the world at the other side of our screens, we can generate a whole host of health benefits.
A&S Landscape was asked to install a generous outdoor shelter at Ysgol Gynradd Llanelltyd in Gwynedd, Wales to make sure that students had access to the outside all year round.
Solution – Our Motiva Linear is an antidote to the indoors. We installed two here, one at 12875mm x 2875mm and another at 14235mm x 2500mm in a smart grey steelwork (RAL 7024) with matching Alu-Tuff™ box profile guttering finished in Dura-Coat™ paintwork.
Result – Screen time is not bad time, neither is indoor time but, in a quote attributed to mothers everywhere ‘everything in moderation’. Making sure students have as much access to the outdoors, all year round, as they do any other stimulus is vital and that can be achieved with an effective outdoor canopy like the Motiva Linear.
